Days three and four of LCA2011 have passed, and now we are almost halfway through the fifth day, Friday. The past couple of days have been quite interesting, with many very cool talks, two social events in the evenings and I got lucky enough to spend some time with Linus Torvalds!
Day two of Linux.conf.au has been and gone, with highlights for me being Vint Cerf's keynote, the RoboCup talk and a 40 minute interview with Jeff Waugh over lunch. Click through for day two's gallery of photos from LCA2011.
Day 1 of Linux.conf.au has come and gone, with talks on everything from building successful businesses on open source to making music with Linux. Here is a selection of photos from today.

As many of you would have seen in the news, Queensland (in Australia for those geographically challenged amongst us) has been attacked by a lot of water recently in the worst flooding since 1974. But what does this mean for LCA2011, which is scheduled to go ahead in Brisbane in just over a week?
Linux.conf.au 2011 has opened registrations for the largest open source conference in the Southern Hemisphere. Linux.conf.au will be held in Brisbane, Australia at the idyllic waterside Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Gardens Point Campus from 24 - 29 January 2011.
Linux.conf.au - the annual Australian Linux conference has announced its mini-conference list with highlights such as freedom in the cloud, rocketry and the business of open source.
